Yum! I just love that Harding Theatre show, and I like to see Bobby McGee given a shout-out every once in a while. Nice Other One sandwich!

Funny how they were using two different "Me and.." songs during that period as the middle (I hesitate to say "meat") of the Other One sandwiches at the end of '71. I sort of wonder if Bobby called for MAMU and someone simply mis-heard it as Bobby McGee and went with it.

But I, for one, love it when BM shows up in unexpected places. The Baltimore Civic Cntr show from 3/26/73 is a perfect example, where it emerges beautifully in a not-really transition out of Wharf Rat to end a spectacular run of..

He's Gone> Truckin> Wheather Report Prelude> Jam> Wharf> Bobby McGee

Sweet jamming all the way through from Garcia, and a great show all-around.
